Dear lads and gents,

I would like to connect a camera to PSOC 6 device. I see there is no CSI or so for that.

Hase someone got any experience in interfacing camera to PSOC 6? Is it possible to make configure something like CSI from UDBs?

I would be happy if there is any project available in that direction.

Thank you in advance!

Best, Denis

I heard some customers using Dual-SPI to interface with a camera. But we do not have any code examples.

Note that you will only be able to interface very low resolution and low frame rate cameras. You also need to use external memory to store the camera shots, since there is not much internal RAM on PSoC 6.

You would be able to implement the interface in UDBs, but it can NOT run at high speeds. You will probably get the maximum clock speed around 50 MHz.

hi Rodolfo, thank you for the reply.

sorry I could not answer earlier, I had some interfaceing issues with this chat in my browser.

I am wondering is there any project on interfacing a camera to a cypress psoc (preferrable 6) via any interface (I am not stickt to CSI)?

thanks!
